Aff530 As A Pattern

Curtain patterns or soft furnishing designs can be difficult to get right and in this case I decided to use blue, a colour that I like but one which for some reason I seldom seem to use.

However, after some experimentation I seem to have produced a design which has the right shades of the colour and which also looks varied enough to be used to make an interesting and useful curtain material.

The design uses motifs influenced by the 1970s but where in that decade the motifs would have been larger and without confining shapes, I have used them a little smaller inside pleasantly rounded rectangles. The colours, I need hardly say, are from my extended range of colours that could well have been found mid-century. The design also conforms to my ideas of Belle Epoque 2 because it has a small motif, colours that contrast (to an extent) and a fast repeat.

I believe that this will make an interesting and pleasant soft furnishing fabric and I particularly saw it at a larger scale than I have used of late as curtaining. I’m looking forward to using it in one of my 3D sets.

If you wish, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns for interiors on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.
